THE NEW YORK HOT LIST
From foodie hotspots in Brooklyn to Manhattan’s coolest museums, here are some favourite places for your next trip to the city that never sleeps.
1 HOTEL BROOKLYN BRIDGE
Designed by local artists, the 1 Hotel Brooklyn Bridge follows a seriously sustainable ethos; its upcycled materials and artwork tell a story of the borough’s past, while the roof terrace is must for lunch in the summer, offering the best views of the city and the meanest margaritas in town.
Sultry lounge The Blond, outfitted with jewel-toned velvet couches and antique mirror columns is our teams go-to for a post-show drink.
Situated at the foot of the High Line in the Meat Packing District, the Renzo Piano-designed Whitney Museum features an expansive glass and steel lobby stretching along Gansevoort Street. This spring, look our for Vida Americana, an exhibition which looks at the profound impact the Mexican muralists had on the art world.
THE LONDON HOT LIST
From authentic dining and low-key hotels to museums and libraries – London’s culture spots are where it’s at.
This Mayfair restaurant promises brunch twists on its Asian-inspired menu, live DJ sets, and cocktails with ‘sexy’ in their names.
With a name inspired by an Irish folk song, this hale and hearty spot is livening up London’s East End. Headed up by Richard Corrigan, John Nugent and Tony Gibne it’s an all-day destination embodying the heart and mischief of the Irish, but with international food influences.
THE TATE MODERN
No walk to the South Bank is complete without a trip to the Tate Modern, check in on Picasso, Dali, Warhol, and Rothko and see what’s happening in the Turbine hall, you’ll find as much modern art as you can muster set off perfectly by that gritty industrial interior.
THE MILAN HOT LIST
The Milanese know how to see and be seen in style. Our team offers some of the hidden gems having a moment with the fashion set right now.
PAPER MOON GIARDINO
Paper Moon has found its latest home in a 200-year-old neoclassical palazzo square in the centre of the city’s Golden Rectangle fashion district. Outdoors, a sunny courtyard is the perfect place to enjoy their exquisite seafood menu. But come fashion week, make sure you’re on the list.
Dry Milano is a hot spot for both classic and creative cocktails. This trendy industrial space, packed with hip locals, has a pizza joint in the back if you are feeling indulgent.
VILLA NECCHI CAMPIGLIO
Villa Necchi Campiglio is and incredible 1930s residence was once the city’s It party house for Italian elites. Relatively young by European standards, the villa was built between 1932 and 1935 by Milanese architect Piero Portaluppi and was was captured in the Luca Guadagnino film, I am Love, starring Tilda Swinton. A Milanese must-see.
THE PARIS HOT LIST
We’ll always have Paris, naturally. But now is the time to update your little black book for the city, adding fresh lunch spots and hip hotels – as selected by our fashion buying .
Balagan (which means hullabaloo in Hebrew) is a great destination for any type of celebration, so long as you come with a sense of humour to match your tastebuds. No fashion week dinner is complete without the Crash Snickers dessert - don’t leave without tasting it.
THE CENTRE POMPIDOU
The Centre Pompidou is certainly a unique-looking building. Most Parisians have warmed to the industrial, Lego-like exterior that caused a scandal when it opened in 1977. Look out for the upcoming tribute to Henri Matisse on the occasion of the 150th anniversary of his birth this May.
LE BON MARCHÉ
If it’s luxe, you can probably buy it at Le Bon Marché, Paris’s oldest and most iconic department store. Look out for their Kure Bazaar Nail Bar which has ecofriendly treatments for beautiful nails.
